The Saskatchewan Roughriders are planning to meet with pending free agent quarterback Zach Collaros prior to the market opening on Feb. 12, according to head coach Craig Dickenson

Collaros was acquired by the Riders in January 2018 from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats for a second round draft pick. Saskatchewan paid Collaros $430,000 last year and the 30-year-old started 14 games for Saskatchewan last season, passing for 2,999 yards, nine touchdowns and 13 interceptions. However, Collaros missed four games due to injury.

In 59 career CFL games – before coming to Saskatchewan – with the Argos (2012-13) and Ticats (2014-17), Collaros accumulated a 66.5 completion percentage for 13,759 yards, 83 touchdowns and 38 interceptions.
